Sara Cleveland

Director of Development, Southern Region

As the Director of Development for the Southern region, Sara seeks to build relationships with donors from Arizona to North Carolina, and everywhere in between. She believes that the moment a major donor sees a way to effect change in the world through their philanthropy, is the moment the world becomes a better place.

Prior to AIUSA, Sara served as the ED of NARAL Pro-Choice Texas, as the Major Gifts Manager at the Livestrong Foundation, and as a dive shop bum on St. Croix in the USVI.

Sara loves to travel, having visited close to 50 countries so far (over 25% to goal!) She lives in Houston with her husband, Delaney, her stepson Griffin, and the cutest darn Doodle there is, Maizie.
